I have loved Abigail Williams since the 2007 EP, and i have also always loved atmospheric black metal. That being said, i just find it funny that they purposefully used "sloppier" sounding drums and a more drowned-out sound in this album so that they could take a more atmospheric route. I really like the album, but I personally don't think they had to do that to their production, it just sounds like they are trying to fit in with the other more underground bands. It would have been nice to hear this atmospheric album with their previous clean production. I am sure that some one-man black metal projects sound the way they do because they self-produce everything. If they had access to all the resources AW had, maybe they'd have a different sound. I am speaking hypothetically of course, I just think that it is funny that they started super clean and precise to the more drowned out sound that many atmospheric bands have. I can't complain because it is what i like. I just think it is a bit backwards..
I'm sorry but the band info you have listed here is not correct. Ian Jekelis isn't "Ex-God Dethroned". Joining a couple of tours as a stand-in for a short time in 2010, an ex-band member does not make.

This is a fucking masterpiece.

An absolute juggernaut.

Someone tell me what the album cover is, i cant tell
Slither7 Fallen
a raw work of art
The Saloon
This is just fucking beautiful. Words like gorgeous, magnificent, brilliant, and masterpiece come to mind to describe this. It's almost 20 minuets long, and feels like it goes by way too quick!
saw them play this other night... pretty freakin awesome
Had the luxury of playing a show with these guys.. A truly great experience

I can sit there and get stuck in a trance for the first 3 minutes or so of this song, but still find myself lost and mesmerized by the heavier parts. Its such a nice song. Makes me love Abigail Williams even more.. Who was at the Camden Underworld show where this band played? Fuck, so sick. If you can tell me who the headliner was that night I'll paypal you £1 lol EDIT: Actually, they headlined! But I went for Viatrophy and learned about AW at the show. That is it. I remember now. They were headlinng and I fell in love. My mate dragged me to the show but I went because Viatrophy were playing! So glad I went now or I would not have this track to listen to.

So awesome could we talk about using some of your talents in a movie Project I am working on Called Realism Witch Worlds Of Temptation and this would be an awesome opening back ground entry for the opening show. 
jose carrasco
this is a masterpiece! \m/
This is EPIC!!!
Paulo Carneiro
uma das melhores musicas que o rock já deu aos homens/mulheres, e eu nem sou fan da banda nem do estilo deles, mas este tema está no patamar dos Deuses.
Kyle Norton
I'm really liking this. The production is way better than a lot of other black metal bands. 
Jeremy Belter
you know whats awesome? the  guys in Abigail that are ex- nachtmystium give the band an epicness to their sound. you know how nachtmystium was influenced by pink floyd and shit...yes....i love this
This production is so fucking garbage. All you can hear is guitar, vocals and cymbals.
I love this album
Misaka Mikoto
sounds like: slow riot for new zer0 kanada - Moya mixed down with Opeth i hope their new album keep this sound
Joshua Atherton
This. Is. Amazing!
This is fucking EPIC! Movie status!
Needs more cowbell.
Daniel Hasman
godspeed you black emperor rip off
Krystofer Robin
The whole song, end to end, is the most... beautiful thing... I have ever heard.
God, that break at 6:50 is just the best. So deep.
Mongolian Dragon
Stop deleting this fucking masterpiece, YT!
Krystofer Robin
Nothing wrong with metal tears, dammit.
Krystofer Robin
Absolutely not. I think this is one of the most beautiful songs ever recorded.
Decanus Severus
Hoc carmen est valde consona. I love it.
Not at all, my friend :)
Mongolian Dragon
Is it wrong if I say I relax to music like this?
Fucking AWESOME!
Kelso King
I feel like an idiot that I haven't listened to this album prior to now. This. Is. Amazing.

And a dark wind blows… Empty vessels left scattered around the roads to nowhere and as we Move past the darkness, I can’t hear a word. We’ve been trapped in the belly of a leviathan But the beast to now bleeding out slowly into the cosmos. The darkness The sadness The sickness The madness Washed away in a magnificent storm The earth was beautiful on fire. Now purified. There are truly the last days of time.
Ignacio Torres
Best 17:32 minutes of my life ever
Dylan Williams
Look another Williams with musical talerntz ;D
Amazing song!
And don't forget the Flaming Lips' six hour psychedelic song, "Found a Star on the Ground." :P
Well there is Dopesmoker by Sleep which is a non-stop 1:03:31 minutes long...
Anyone that says this is worse than their previous albums must have no attention span whatsoever. This is pure brilliance. I don't care if it, "drones on too long" or if it's not all fancily produced. The composition is impeccable and the atmosphere is great. The last album sounded like Emperor worship and the one before that sounded like Dimmu meets As I lay Dying or something. I still liked them, but I have so much more respect for this.
aleysis maya gore
masterpiece :D
John West Tuna
The album art looks a bit like Iron Man
Tom Wall
Love your bit Bryan man
Allan Cassidy left for the Bdm
octavio aguayo
out ov no where.... music changed from horrible to pretty good
Some very interesting members in this band! And interesting music as well. A big departure to Darkthrone and the early 2nd wave bands, but it's still amazing! If it sounds like any band, I'd say it's Emperor, but it's difficult to say. Nothing like Wolves in the Throne Room at all. Why do people even think that? Is it because they're the only black metal band they know of?
Sounds a lot like Wolves in the Throne Room - great song.

Sweet fucking eargasm...
Jono Hill
No they're not satanic, if you look at the lyrics it's all very poetic and beautiful in this album, they tend to sound very dark however
Was it in Columbus, Ohio at the Shrunken Head? If so, I was there too! They did a great job.
Just attended a show and saw these guys for the first time. I wish I had an opportunity to listen to this NOT on fucking youtube. Good shit tho

good question
Alan Cassidy
They used to be but are now far from. That's from the singers mouth.
Ok, I'm not trying to sound like I'm some Bible thumper because I'm am not even close to that, but I have been listening to this band a lot recently and can barely find any information about them and I'd like to know if they're Satanic or not. I don't mind if they are, I'd just like to know.
Powerful song, amazing from beginning to end.
And a dark wind blows… Empty vessels left scattered around the roads to nowhere and as we Move past the darkness, I can’t hear a word. We’ve been trapped in the belly of a leviathan But the beast to now bleeding out slowly into the cosmos.
Every time I listen to this, I love it as much as the first time. People complaining about the lyrical content...just ugh.

My brother's ada was in the band Bjorn I'm telling the honest to god truth
One of my favorite songs of the year.
Also note the correlation between the lyrics excerpts you posted and Godspeed You! Black Emperor's song Dead Flag Blues. :)
"and as we move past the darkness, I cannot hear a sound. We've been trapped in the belly of a Leviathan but the beast is now bleeding out slowly into the cosmos." This line is talking about humans freeing themselves and becoming actual human beings. I guess I don't see what is so hopeless about that. Abigail Williams lyrics can seem about darkness, emptiness, despair etc but if you pay attention and know a thing or two about the metaphysical side of things you will clearly see that isn't so.
"The earth was beautiful on fire now purified" This is obviously speaking of the alchemical flame of transmutation and not an actual destructive fire. "These are truly the last days of time" This is describing the end of the actual perception of time which is currently limiting us in this experience.
This lyrics of this song describe an apocalypse but not in the sense that most people know the word. (Greek: ἀποκάλυψις apocálypsis, meaning 'un-covering') is a revelation of something hidden. In religious contexts it is usually a revelation of hidden meaning - hidden from mankind in an era dominated by falsehood and misconception.) How is this a message of hopelessness? It clearly describes a shift in consciousness and a purification of the earth.
You've got a lot of balls to say that metal of any sort is for those who have hope for nothing. A lot of balls.
Luis Iniguez
close minded; no. asshole; doesn't apply. Certainty about a genre that only growls about darkness and emptiness; pure opinion and self-explanatory through song. Therefore, this music is for the people who spend their days hopeless. I'm not a closed minded asshole who listens to Tyga, Lil' Wayne, or any artists of that category, that automatically judges music because it has screams or growls. I judge it by lyrics and music. They're talented and play good but it's too depressing and lyrically sad
There are many different kinds of black you know, one of the broader genres in metal in my opinion
Walter Black
@11Martyr11 No one is forcing you to listen to "black metal"...
Maurise Stephens
I thought I'd never Like Black Metal..... But This Band is Fucking Awsome :D
Luis Iniguez
Black metal is too depressing and boring. It's for the sad mopey people who have hope for nothing. Don't reply with things like, "You don't know music bitch, hail satan" I know music more than you think. I'd rather listen that pumps me up for the day than be sad about living another day. My opinion, now back to my Between The Buried And Me.
RIP :(
Beginning makes me think of Castevania!
French Montana
This is a timeles classic. 10 out of 10, marvellous.
You must have the attention span of a stump.

ed elric
i love the new abigail, then again i listen to black metal and not one of the scene kids who listened to these guys cause idiots think they are deathcore, well core kids here is ur answer they are not, now STFU and enjoy some black metal
Funny you should mention it - I'm the same way about music, and yet my penis is huge.
Funny to read your channel.. Seems like you only do the effort to search video's you don't like. Nice life you have there..

holy moly poly oly
This might be the greatest song I have ever experienced. And I do mean experienced, this isn't a song you simply "listen" to. Abigail Williams gives me hope for America metal. In two weeks I am taking a trip to Finland, and I honestly never thought I would be listening to an American band while I am there, this Abigail Williams album will surely change that!
